Art was a member of the U.S. Army stationed in Weiden, Germany. He met and married Johanna (Hansi) Tegtmeier from Weiden in 1946.

In 1949 they bought a house in the 1st subdivision in Oak Park where they raised three children, Linda, Jimmy and Raymond. In 1968 Art moved to Lake Orion and opened Artís Courtesy Service Station. He became a fixture over the years in Lake Orion and someone that people could turn to for help and depend on him to do what he said. Art eventually became involved with the American Legion and liked to throw parties like Artís Annual Polish Day, that helped raise money for the Legionís projects. Art sold his service station and retired in 2000 at the age of 77. He volunteered at the Lake Orion Veteranís Memorial to help with the landscaping and generally keeping it clean until he was diagnosed with Alzheimerís. He lived at Harbor Chase Memory Care the last three years of his life. Funeral services were held on Monday, January 27, 2014 at St. Joseph Catholic Church.
